The Kyoto Protocol

The Kyoto Protocol is a Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

Had the US been a signatory to the UNFCCC Kyoto Protocol, neither the 2015 Paris Climate Accord nor the 2017 Chicago Climate Charter would have been required.

Don't forget Paris

Lets not forget the 2015 PARIS Climate Accord


Don't forget the 2017 Chicago Climate Change Charter

Mayor Emmanuel does not want us to forget the 2017 Chicago Climate Charter

My paper, A Financial Algorithm for Computing the Levelized Cost (US$/MWh; €/MWh) of Storing Wind Electricity (LCOS), will be presented at WindPower 2018, 7-10 May, Chicago.

Stop by my poster or set up an appointment  

I look forward to helping you. 



WindPower 2018 Paper Abstract

Solar Power International 2017 (SPI-17) 10-13 September, Las Vegas


There is no charge to download my SPI-17 paper!

Did you attend Solar Power International 2017, 10-13 September in Las Vegas? 

I presented my paper, A Financial Algorithm for Computing the Levelized Cost of Storing PV Electricity (LCOSE), at the poster session on Monday, 11 September, 5pm-6pm.   

What goes go on in Las Vegas should stay in Las Vegas, except for my SPI-17 Vegas paper. Even if you do not live in Vegas, you can download your copy of my SPI-17 paper (Version 2.00) @   There is open access.

You get my SPI-17 paper (pdf), the Excel worksheet (pdf) and, of course, a copy of the poster (pdf) for your home or office wall.


Schedule to meet with me at my Chicago Office! Contact me @  

I look forward to helping you.

"Illinois On-Farm Energy Production and Rural Economic Development", A Roundtable, October 31, 2017 in Bloomington, IL

Lincoln dried his corn here!

                                                           An Old Illinois Solar and Wind Powered Corn Dryer

I was at this roundtable, Illinois On-Farm Energy Production and Rural Economic Development, in Bloomington, IL on Tuesday, October 31. I contributed to the discussion of how Illinois agricultural organizations and policy makers can work together to help producers increase profitability while bringing more jobs to rural areas.

To continue my study of railroads as a climate mitigating technology, I took Amtrak from Chicago to Bloomington.

Solar Power International 2013 (SPI-13)

Download my SPI-13 paper for free!

I presented my paper, The Increase in Global Solar Power Caused by Extending the Kyoto Protocol Until 2030, at Solar Power International 2013, October 21-24, Chicago, IL USA.  My paper is a counterfactual scenario.  I prepared an updated version of my paper for the 2015 COP 21 in Paris. I know Paris, I know the Kyoto Protocol and now I know the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. Consider me to be your 2015 Paris (COP 21) Climate Agreement Advisor.  I compete with many of the major consulting firms.  GO TO:
